I bake my own bread at least once a week, I just happen to mix the dough in
a machine!  I have had one failure in almost 2 years, compared to very few
successes pre machine.  I have 2 small children and a husband with 2 jobs,
so my time is much better spent than mixing an kneading.  I almost always
bake it in the oven, on a cookie sheet, no stone, no pan of water, no
misting, no bricks..., it is fabulous and is requested by all of our friends
when we go there for dinner.

I have toasted them, sometimes I just slice it up and leave it out over
night.  I have a big ziploc in the freezer, I add all kinds of bread to it
and about once a month I use the food processor to make crumbs, I season
them, you don't have to, but anyway, I put parma. cheese, various herbs,
salt and pepper, drag chicken through it and bake or panfry, yum!  I also
use them in meatloaf.  I store them in a tupperware type container in the
